Peruís Humala Denies Receiving Bribes from Brazilian Companies

LIMA Ė Peruvian President Ollanta Humala denies any connection with alleged bribery by a Brazilian company and summoned Brazilís ambassador in Lima ďto request official information on the matter,Ē the government said Tuesday.

Peruvian media circulated a story from Brazilís Globo.com online daily that cited a police report identifying Humala as one of the foreign officials suspected of accepting bribes from Brazilian construction giant Odebrecht.

Brazilian Ambassador Marcos Raposo Lopes was summoned to the presidential palace Monday night for a meeting with Humala, Prime Minister Pedro Cateriano and Foreign Minister Ana Maria Sanchez.

Peruís Congress appointed in November a commission to investigate allegations that Brazilian companies bribed Peruvian officials to obtain public works contracts.

The congressional panel is investigating purported meetings between Brazilian businesswoman Zaida Sisson and members of the Humala administration and that of his predecessor, Alan Garcia.

Sergio Tejada, the commission chair, said Sisson visited the presidential palace at least seven times during Garciaís 2006-2011 tenure and that she met with Garcia.

Sisson is the wife of Rodolfo Beltran Bravo, who served as Peruís agriculture minister under Garcia.
